As we’ve established, California is a beautiful place to visit and we have a lot to offer. Whether you’re a cruise ship passenger or a sunny-day adventure seeker, there’s plenty to do and see in the Golden State. One of the most popular places to visit in California is Huntington Beach, located in Orange County. If you’ve never been there, here’s a quick guide that’ll have you hooked up with the perfect beach vacation in no time!
Arriving early at the park is always the best policy. There are lots of places to park and if you show up toward the end of the day, you’ll struggle to find a spot. So, get to the park early in the morning to secure a good parking spot and be sure to get a nice view of the water. Also, if you’re a person who likes to sleep in, getting an early start will allow you to arrive at your destination around lunchtime, so you’ll be able to take a break from your busy day and hit the beach.
Use Public Transport
Huntington Beach is easily accessible by rail and bus. The station is right across the street from the park and it’s a straight shot from there to the beach via the busier streets. If you do decide to drive, there is plenty of parking in the residential areas and near the park, so you shouldn’t have a problem finding a space. However, if you’re coming from further away areas, it’s best to take the bus or train. It’ll be much more fun and less stressful exploring the area on foot.
Stay In The Park
There are lots of beautiful places to stay in Huntington Beach and you should put this one at the top of your list. The key is to find a good spot in the park, near the beach and close to restaurants and bars. If you stay here, you’ll have everything you need and more! You can put the kitchenette to good use by making simple meals or you can get a pizza delivered right to your room (if you’re lucky enough to get one!). If you want to spend less money, you can stay in an eco-friendly hostel. Not only are they great for budget, they’ll even give you a tour of the park so you can get an idea of where everything is. There are lots of great hostels in Los Angeles and San Francisco, so if you’re not wanting to stay far from the city, this is the perfect option. Book your stay at one of these places today!
Visit The Beach
One of the main reasons why people visit Huntington Beach is because of the beautiful beach. There’s something undeniably romantic about walking along the beach and finding a spot where the sunset meets the water. Naturally, you’ll want to swim in the beautiful Pacific Ocean, so make sure you bring lots of comfortable clothes along with you. Also, make sure you’ve got a pair of good shoes for walking on the beach or at least for exploring the area. Don’t forget about the weather in Huntington Beach. It can be quite unpredictable, so make sure you check the forecast before you travel. Sometimes, it can be hot and humid, so bringing plenty of water will be essential. If you want to avoid dehydration and sunburn, be sure to slather on the sunscreen daily. Even if you don’t burn easily, you’ll thank yourself for this precaution later. A good sunscreen can prevent many sun-related problems. Another essential item to bring is a large umbrella. It’s going to rain sometimes, even in the desert, so make sure you pack your raincoat as well. These items will provide you with protection from the sun and the rain, so make sure you bring them along. If there are any plants or trees in your area that provide natural insulation and protection from the heat and cold, bring them along as well. For instance, oaks provide very good insulation against the cold and they also help reduce the heat inside your home. If you have them in your area, it’s worth finding out their properties and how you can use them. Sometimes, it just takes one tiny change to improve your life. These suggestions will help you make the most of your trip to Huntington Beach and have a stress-free time spending some quality time with your loved one.
